. but the u.s. has declined. the united states has never proposed iran a comprehensive package. never. my point is this. first, try at least once. i real hi don't care in iran whether we have a conservative or moderate president or reformist because i have been working for 16 years under the presidents and i know we did our utmost to get a good -- to bring the relation, to improve the relation with the u.s. and the u.s. always declined. therefore, this is the same policy during ahmadinajed. but they have better justification during ahmadinajed. they use the holocaust and all the these rhetorics which is very harmful for iran's national interests. my suggestion is this. any u.s. administration i hope after the election -- because we cannot talk before the election -- propose at least once after 33 years a comprehensive package including terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, peace process, israel, human rights, democracy, all these major points for the u.s. and iranians also they have their own shopping list. and the u.s. also should be prepared to address iranian concerns. if it failed,
speaker of the house, john boehner. >> welcome. let me just say ohio has a great united states senator in rob portman. he's been my friend for about 25 years and i remember about 22 years ago telling rob he ought to leaf the white house and go home and get himself ready to run for congress. let me tell you what, he's done a great job on behalf of cincinnati and a great job on behalf of ohio and the country in all of his roles in public service. rob, keep up the great job. republicans were lucky enough to win the majority 18 months ago. we promised the american people that it would not be about us, it would be about the american people. we promised to listen to the american people and follow their will. that's for 18 straight months, we have focused on the economy and jobs every single day. and you know, while we've done all of this good work in the house and done what the people have asked us to do, harry reid has blocked everything we sent over there. this is why it's important we elect josh man del and harry reid back to nevada. the president made a lot of promises in his campaign. m
laden did. he had this exhaustion attrition strategy when it came to the united states and the west. he has continued that to a certain extent. he has very much switched the inus to building affiliate's other countries and to increase the strength of al qaeda in africa, the middle east, and elsewhere. the has been very successful at it. here is the one thing about him that has me on a knife's edge. if he were really smart, he would never attack the united states again. it led to such a disaster for them after 9/11 for the first few years. it really set back a lot of division that bin laden had and then you had to spend your time convincing as it was not worth your while. if he was smart, we would go back to sleep like we were in the 1990's and you could go out and create whenever you wanted to and we would not pay attention unless americans got killed. i do not know if he's that smart or that patient. i believe he is a man is controlled by a desire for revenge for the death of his wife, the death of his son, and for the torture he underwent in prison. he may not be able to control his a
